From The Blue Guitar suite.

Signed etching with aquatint from the main edition of 200.

This suite of etchings was inspired by a poem by Wallace Stevens, who had drawn inspiration from Picasso's painting The Old Guitarist.

Printed in London and New York at the Petersburg Studios.

Published by Petersburg Press as both a print portfolio and a book. Hockney created the images to accompany the book-length poem, The Man with the Blue Guitar (1937) by Modernist American poet Wallace Stevens. After an initial series of ink drawings, Hockney progressed into coloured etchings, a technique he learned in Paris working with Aldo Crommelynck, Pablo Picasso's printer. Hockney collaborated with Maurice Payne on this suite.
David Hockney PortraitHockney was born in Bradford in 1937. He was a brilliant draughtsman, the best known painter of his generation, and gained international success in his mid-20s. Hockney attended Bradford School of Art and Royal College of Art, where he was awarded a Gold Medal for Etching. Having settled in Los Angeles he held various teaching posts in America and was Slade Professor of Fine Art , Cambridge University, 1990.

Hockney’s work is held in galleries internationally and he has had a continuous stream of one-man shows around the world. Notable works for the printed page are his illustrations for Cavafy’s Poems, 1967, and Six Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, 1969. He was elected RA in 1991 and was made Companion of Honour in 1997.
